Now we are moving towards our next step, this is Where you come in!
Processing collected waste requires the construction of a waste processing facility.
We are raising funds, ideally $35,000 USD, to build out an operational and revenue generating waste processing facility. This will demonstrate the feasibility of our full business model. With our current customer count, we would be processing 13 tons of waste and producing about 2 tons of fertilizer per month. Once we get to 2,000 customers we would process 40 tons of waste and produce 5 tons of fertilizer per month.
Every ton of Organic compost fertilizer we produce means giving 5 farmers 200 kg of organic compost fertilizer. The average small holder farmer uses less 10 kg of fertilizer per hectare.
I believe in the mission of DalO--to improve public health, create jobs, and increase fertilizer access by providing a reliable and professional waste management service to the approximately 200,000 individuals that call Kankan, Guinea home and the over 20 million individuals who live in secondary cities across West Africa. Our mission is one I've committed the last few years of my life to and intend to stick through until we develop a sustainable model for waste management .
It's my life's work.
Any amount--no matter how small--will be immensely appreciated. I thank you all so much for your support and hope to have more great news to share with you while in Geneva.
